It saddens me to tell you that the lesions removed from Kayla's lungs are indeed cancerous. SIGH!!!
The good news, is that she won't be requiring Chemo. For now, the Doctors are satisfied to continue monitoring her lungs with monthly scans to watch that the remaining nodes do not grow any larger. Apparently the latest studies show that chemo does not make a significant difference in the progress of patients with lung mets following osteosarcoma.
I am sure Kayla is relieved to know she will be able to continue to let her hair grow. She wont have to worry about the nausea and weakness that chemo brings. At least not at this point in time. The good news continues to be that the cancer shows no sign of recurrence in her leg and Kayla grows more mobile each and every passing day. Her progress with her prosthetic limb is nothing short of amazing!
Thank you all for your concern and prayers.
